According to the latest reports in the Italian press, via CalcioNapoli24 and Sport Witness, Liverpool are prepared to go all in on attempting to sign Piotr Zielinski this time.
Jurgen Klopp is clearly a massive fan. The Reds had an offer rejected for the Polish star when he was at Udinese back in 2016, per BBC, and Piotr eventually joined then Maurizio Sarri’s Napoli instead, where the midfielder has been exceptional.
After connections cropped up again the previous summer, the Italian press are stating Liverpool are preparing a whopping €60 million (£51.8 million) bid to secure the star’s services this time.
Piotr was a player with huge potential when he took pictures wearing a Reds shirt way back in 2016 in the hopes of sealing his dream switch to Anfield.
He’s no longer just “potential” now though and has transformed into one of the most intelligent and technically gifted midfielders in Europe.
The 24-year-old star has completed 90% of his passes in 30 league showings this campaign, averaging 1.6 key passes and one dribble per game as well as 1.1 tackles per match.
Having played wealth of times on the left flank of midfield this season and displaying brilliant dribbling, vision and acceleration from midfield, Zielinski could be Jurgen’s replacement for the creativity that walked out the door with Brazil international Philippe Coutinho.
Meanwhile, Liverpool star Bobby Adekanye has met his representative to discuss his future as SS Lazio look to rope the star in when the summer market opens.
The 20-year-old forward is out of contract at the end of the campaign and has refused to pen a new deal with Reds as he plans to leave Anfield ahead of the new season.
